Today, along

* CURIOSITIES:

> From the new album “Rise” (released
last June 21) this was the first song to be played live in May 17, 2018 at
Turning Stone Resort Casino, Verona, New York during the 2018 Tour.

> This is the third version of
the song.
This is the shorter version of the song known. Although the video runs for 3
minutes and 40 seconds, the song only really starts 15 seconds later after the
conversation between the members during a flight, and ends 15 earlier too. You
can also hear in the beginning that the interlude “How the Glass
Fell” is playing. With few edits in the beginning and end, an “Album Edit” or “Radio
Edit” can be created and sent to radio stations to be played, due to most radios
prefer to play shorter versions.
The “Live Version” is a little bit longer and played during the tour or TV
performances. The song it’s the first to be played after the mash-up intro of “Bela
Lugosi’s Dead” + “The Last Vampire” and runs between 4 minutes and 40 seconds and 5 minutes.
The Album Version, included on the album “Rise”, is the longest track of the
album and their career. Although ending around 5 minutes, it keeps running for 7 minutes and 13
seconds. Alice Cooper was probably talking about this song in an interview for the “Ultimate Classic Rock”, last April 25, 2019: “..and if that means that the B section goes
too long, good, let it go too long. Normally, I would cut that in half, but I
said, ‘No, no, let’s let it go long.’ If I think that doesn’t make sense right
there, I kind of go: ‘Yeah, but that’s the personality of this song.”

>

Joe Perry also talked about the meaning of the song during an interview for the “Loudwire”, last

June 6, 2019: “It’s a commentary on the state of things. There’s that sense of people wanting things now. They don’t want it later, they don’t want it tomorrow, they want it now…That’s what’s driving it.”

>  For being partially written by Johnny and confirmed by Cooper that he is singing Johnny’s venom on the album, the first part can also be a hidden message about the actual hell he has been living.

OFFICIAL LYRICS:

(One, two, three, four!)

Dark inside the pain
Lost in the mundane
A lie for which I’m blamed
A hostage no one claims 

The fugitive’s way, I won’t obey
Your bullets just ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
I say… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now!… 

I want my now… 

I live wherever I want
Too much time to think
Fire in the brain
Twisted and insane 

To runaway there’s just no way
Your bullets still ricochet 

I’m going in madness; I’m going in
madness (2x)
You’ll pay… 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now…

I want my now… 

I want a house, I want a car
I wanna be a movie star
I want some gold, I wanna a brick
I want a diamond selfie stick (Yeah)
I want a jet, I want to fly
I never wanna answer why
I want a crown, I want to reign
Wanna be a royal pain…

And I want it… NOW! 

I want my now, now, now 

I want my now!
I need my now!
I want my now!
I need my now, RIGHT NOW!
I want my now… 

Now, now, now…

The photo was taken last May 7, in Los Angeles, during the photoshoot for the album “Rise” and the American 2019 Spring Tour. An alternate shot was previously released last June 21.

ALICE COOPER: ‘JOHNNY DEPP Is As Good A Guitar Player As Anybody’:

“The album came out, the ‘Rise’ album, our second album, came out with mostly original material on it and it did really well — it was number one in, like, 15 countries,” he said (hear audio below). “It did really well. What tells us is that we should start writing another album. Johnny’s making movies right now. Joe’s [Perry] out with AEROSMITH doing residencies [in Las Vegas], and I’m on tour until December, so we probably won’t be meeting up again until the beginning of the year. Then we’ll start plotting out when the tour will be, and what the next album will be. But we will go out and tour again with the ‘Rise’ album.”

Cooper then shared how HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES came together and the type of outlet it provides in comparison to the far more theatrical nature of own band. “It was so unique,” he said. “I told ’em: ‘What we should do is put a bar band together. Call it HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES and just play songs for all of our dead, drunk friends. It was really true. All the guys we used to drink with, most of them died. I said, ‘Look: You’ve got Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Keith Moon, T.REX [Marc Bolan]. I said, ‘We could do all these songs.’ Not expecting it to end up playing in front of 200,000 people. I thought we were going to be a little bar band. We ended up touring and doing a whole bunch of European shows that had ten, twenty, thirty thousand people.”

He continued: “The band was so good. It had Duff McKagan from GUNS ‘N ROSES. We have Joe Perry for AEROSMITH. Johnny’s as good a guitar player as anybody. People always kind of question Johnny’s guitar playing. I tell them: Do you know who he’s out with right now and playing in the band? They ask, ‘Who?’ I said ’Jeff Beck.’ If you’re playing with Jeff Beck, the greatest guitar player of all time, that does say something about your guitar playing.”
